Needing support to do this for good.

Postby Sydneygirl » Mon Nov 05, 2012 1:21 pm

Hi there, I'm Sophie (Sydneygirl),

I'm 23 and weight 88kgs. My goal weight is 60kgs.
I have yoyoed in the past (my highest was 96kgs) but now I need to lose it for good.

I am exercising at least once a day and eating loads of fresh fruit and veggies. No processed foods.

I can't talk about it with my friends and family as they just don't understand. My fiancé is very supportive though. Just looking for some buddies and support to keep me on the right track.

Thanks Kim,
I'm enjoying reading through all the old posts and catching up to where everyone is at.

The best thing happened today, a colleague who I haven't seen for about 2 months came into the office this arvo and said 'oh soph, you look like you've lost a bit of weight' to which I said 'yes I have' :P she is the first person outside of my family (that know I'm trying to lose weight), that has said something.
It was the best feeling and gave me such a boost. It's funny how something so small makes such an impact.

Good isn't it? Just wait till they come at you staring with a bewildered look on their faces saying, "Soph...is that you?" That's even more fun!

Don't believe for one moment that other people haven't noticed. It has been my experience that they are just too shy to say something. People are watching. You are an example and an inspiration for them without even knowing it.
